Industrial Mentoring Scheme

We allocate every first-year undergraduate student an industrial mentor, supporting our students to develop into future engineers and computer scientists.

Our mentoring scheme enables students to find out about studying, graduating and industry first-hand, insights into how their mentor developed from a student into an engineer or computer scientist. Students meet their mentor, in a small group of other students, multiple times over a calendar year; spanning a student's first and second years. Some students may be able to visit their mentor on site, an invaluable opportunity to see their studies applied in the real-world.

Find and use mentors sooner… Seek out people whose style you want to emulate, or who are really good at something that doesn’t come naturally to you, and ask if they will help you learn from them. Build and maintain relationships with people you admire. Your network can be one of your biggest external assets!

It was very satisfying to see the improvement in the students from the first meeting to the last. Their increased experience really comes through in the questions they ask. It also paints a very positive picture for all Bristol University students; I believe the course must be well made as there are clearly very good results over the year.
